Eloquence- Documenting Abstractions of the Mind

Documenting the very abstractions of thought is nothing short of tedious and ever- perplexing. A task bent on the pinpointing and unearthing of a stream of cognition, bound by a passion to establish a pristine breakthrough. Breakthroughs that seek to revolutionise and transfigure the nexus of thought we consider as our source of intellectual enlightenment. As an intellectual, poring over the vast myriad of literature can yield unexpected progress, often as a result of meticulous contemplation or simply out of the thinnest of air. But what if that which was yielded spanned millennia and illustrated a very state of mind, a mentality, a state of being? A reality upheld discretely and covertly by academic and intellectual circles of the highest eminence, one that was obliged to manifest itself through an infinite array of forms. One that could simply not be demonstrated, documented in the literary forms. Such a conundrum is deeply interwoven throughout that of the academic road, the paths and schools of thought. A conundrum concerning that of the attainable, the accessible but remains seemingly unfeasible and impractical to maifest in a systematic fashion. Such an abstraction is derived from that of Eloquence. Having been pondered for is conventional and dogmatic role as a means of articulation, it assumes an esoteric role outside of that platform. One that dictates a psychological, ethical and intellectual state of being, one that moulds and forges a personality from the essence of the psyche. The psyche remains beyond that of the self, the being, rather it is the essence of the intelligent being, the purest of its substance. An abstraction such as that eloquence is nothing short of profound, but documenting its every mechanics that lie behind that of the mechanism is one that has teased the intellectual mind, provoked and instigated a faceless and nameless challenge. A challenge that seeks to pore over the self, the mind and portray its dexterity and sheer capacity as both trivial and backward. Such sensations of inferiority are evoked and portrayed by that of the abstraction, for it is ever accesible, every attainable but no where near the proximity of portrayable. Eloquence in the strictest and simplest of literary terms can be extracted from an analogy, for it is analogous, similar and comparable to ink that flows freely from that of the ball point biro; the water that flows liberally from that of the faucet. To the exoteric mind,  such analogies are two direct representations of a flowing and flourishing entity. To the mind of the esoteric, the intellectual; these literary analogies are a preeminent declaration of absolute fluency, of a flawless and seamless cognition. For ink is the converger onto the nexus of thought and the water, the moist, fluid inspiration. Eloquence can be portrayed from a range of psychological fronts that seek to reason the workings of mind and behaviour. The lack of a definitive eloquent entity or eloquence itself is predominately linked to that of the conundrum, that the abstract realities are excessively accessible and attainable, yet they remain alien to representation and definition. This stands as more than a philosophical statement, rather as a logical encounter with a product of cognition and contemplation, for philosophy remains the essence of thought and not the essence of abstractions that arise from that of thought. Eloquence has been attained in a number of measures by prominent historical figures knowingly and obliviously by some of the more contemporary thinkers. It is our obligation and our commitment as possessors of a substantial measure of intellect to uncover and unearth these pristine abstractions and forge a junction between that of the abstract and the literary. A junction between eloquence and a defining model...
